Android, It’s Here To Stay

android-logoAttention Steve Jobs and all Apple fanboys! The Android platform is not going away. With the release of the new Motorola Droid and version 2.0 of the Android OS, Google has proven that it’s not going to be bullied by the iPhone anymore. What’s more, the number of Android options available in the market makes it easy to find the phone that fits you. So I thought it might be handy to give a quick rundown of the Android devices that are currently available in the States. These are all powerful pocket computers; and with over 10,000 apps now available in the Android Marketplace it’s become easier than ever to find that one application you just can’t live without. With Christmas fast approaching a shiny new Android phone might be the perfect gift for the geek in your life.
